What I do and what I like that other people do.

Some Lisbon drawings

I drew today’s Google Doodle celebrating Leo Tolstoy’s 186th birthday. Big thanks to Ryan for the assignment, to Sophia for assistance with parallaxing and other complicated things, to the engineers/programmers who made things move and to everyone who liked it and wrote nice things to me!

Here’s the full interactive version if you missed it on the homepage (you can drag the scenes instead of clicking to see the transitions better).

And here’s an illustrated blogpost about the process (as usual, I did it with my demented method of inking everything separately).

PS. I’ll use this opportunity to plug my debut graphic novella (In A Sense) Lost & Found which is out today. Coincidence?! Yes.

Zainab Akhtar called it in a Publishers Weekly review "an utterly immersive beauty." She’s usually right about everything.

“Back in the day, Walter would, every once in a while, forget how to draw. Remember?" Louise said.

“Oh yeah,” Walter agreed. “That still happens occasionally. It’s like, ‘Oh my god, nothing I’m drawing looks any good anymore. My life is over as an artist.’ And what I realized, because I was an editor at the time, and had seen a lot of work go past me, was that when you hit this phase where suddenly your stuff, which looks just like it did yesterday, doesn’t look good to you anymore, it’s because your mind has made a leap. Your brain has gotten farther than your hand has learned to do it yet. But eventually, give it a few weeks, keep it up and you’ve made a leap in your own craft. That was a big help because it was so depressing when you realize you couldn’t draw anymore.”

Exactly this.
